– Can’t find us? Ask the Black Bull staff where the slam is! They’ll be happy to point you in the right direction!
3rd Thursday of every month. Sign-up is @ 8pm with Open Mic and then Slam to follow
For smoking hot poetry!
A cover charge $5 (Only $5???) goes towards paying for the feature performer and prize money for the winner of the slam.
As always we’ll have an Open Mic for any and all types of performance; bring your guitar, your songs, your stand-up, your rants and ragtime show tunes – it’s all about getting it out there! Or you can always sign up for the slam, see if you have what it takes to reign supreme, and take home the cash prize.
Thursday, October 20th – Burlington Slam Project Feat Guelph Poetry Slam Team!
Alright! The season started with a bang, and we’re gonna ride this explosion all the way to finals! We’re comin’ back atcha in the Black Bull with another stellar poetry slam, this time featuring some dear friends from up Guelph Line – The Guelph Poetry Slam Team!
The 2016 Guelph Poetry Slam team is in the kitchen cooking everything from calamity cuisine and sizzling serenity for a fantastic feast of fellowship. Bassam, Erratic, Fannon, Eitan, and Elise are masterful word chefs, preparing awareness entrées and poetic pastries with stovetop-speech and knife-sharp wit. Their oven-hot talents will roast microphones and have listeners tantalized with scorched poems so savoury, your ears and tastebuds will be burning with gratitude and delight. Welcome to the kitchen. We got somethin’ cookin’.
The GPS team is sure to let you know “where it’s at!”
Bring a fiver and a friend! Want to get in free? Volunteer! We need scorekeepers, timekeepers, someone to play Vanna White on the big scoreboard, door people, all sorts! If you’re interested in getting involved with our scene, let us know! Otherwise, the mic is there! If you’re not ready for judgment, hit the open mic! Otherwise, join the slam with your 2 dopest pieces! Or why not try being a judge? Be the controller of the scores for an evening! There’s loads to experience, and even without all that, the audience gets to make a lot of noise and hear a ton of awesome poetry! What else are you going to do on a Thursday Night?
SPECIAL NOTICE! The annual Straight to the Streets clothing drive is coming up, and we’re collecting clothes! For October only, bring in some new (packaged) underwear in lieu of the $5 cover and help us clothe those who really need it this winter!
Hope to see y’all out!
